Eggcitement is building at Armidale Regional Council libraries, as they prepare for a fortnight of free school holiday activities from this Monday.
Activities for children of all ages will begin with an Easter crafts session at the Armidale Regional War Memorial Library on 15 April at 10am to 3pm. Participants will get to create vintage egg baskets, bunny ears, decorated eggs and other Easter related paper crafts.
Both the Armidale and Guyra libraries will host Once Upon a Brick, giving kids the chance to tell stories through Lego bricks. Kids will work in small groups to build brick worlds, with different types of Lego to suit children of all ages.
